Comprail 2010 - 12th International Conference on Computer System Design and Operation in the Railway and other Transit Systems, Beijing, September 2010.
The European project called „INESS – Integrated European Signalling System“
aims at defining and developing specifications for a new generation of
interoperable interlocking systems suitable to be integrated in ERTMS systems,
with the objective of making the migration to ERTMS more cost-effective. The
Technical University of Braunschweig is leader of the part of INESS that deals
with the safety case process. The aim of this essential subproject is to reduce
time and money for the development of the safety case in industry, i.e. operators
as well as suppliers, by avoiding unnecessary or redundant procedures. In this
workstream a dozen European partners have contributed to the results.
